    All with 1GB RAM.

    Pretty much what was expected, aside from those who thought they'd be aluminium.

    These aren't in every nation, US seems to be only store with them at the moment. Macbook Pro has a 2.6GHz option too.

    It's amazing to me that I'm coming up on a year with my 17" MBP and it still feels like a brand new machine. Usually at the 1 year point I start feeling the claws of obselescence pulling at me.

    *New video CHIP.

    And yes they are a bit faster than last generation. But the X3500 is what you really want for gaming, wont replace stand alone cards, but does decent on recent games like BF2 with ~30 frames.

    Macbooks usually last longer than regular laptops. Even more so before the Intel change. I remembered Powerbooks holds its value REALLY well....ever since they change to Intel chips, the value doesnt hold as much as it use to on PPC.
